A Note from the Principal

A wise person once said, “The road to success is not easy to navigate, but with hard work, drive, and passion anything is possible.” A message we need to continue instilling in our 7th-12th grades students as the first semester comes to a close. Students need to push through with hard work to finish strong!

Finals will take place December 20th, 21st, and 22nd. You can find our finals schedule on the school website. Juniors and Seniors do qualify to exempt out of elective finals. There will exemption forms in the office that they will need to fill out in order to exempt. Juniors and Seniors will be able to leave the building with parent permission if they do not have a final. Report cards will be mailed out the first week in January. Students, good luck with finals! We got this!

The CSHS Fine Arts programs are in full swing. In October we had the fall concert. This was an eventful evening of band and choir songs put on by Mrs. Hanson and our junior high/high school students. The annual junior high/high school Christmas concert will take place on December 20th at 7 pm. There will also be a joint choir selection where staff and students will sing a selection together! The one act play, advised by Mr. Koppinger, recently had their region competition finishing in 6th place. This group had a performance for the community and during the school day for the 7th -12th graders. This humorous production entails online dating and all the complications that go along with it.

Exciting news! On November 22nd CSHS held their first ever Honor Society Induction Ceremony. Our Honor Society advisor Mrs. Hanson put together a wonderful ceremony to induct seven juniors and seniors. Ms. Davidson was the guest speaker. She offered insight and advice for our inductees and even spoke a little French. Congratulations to Jayden Hall, Rebecca Peterson, Reanna Schmidt, Cameron Albers, Katelynn Albers, Katelyn Frank, and Breanna Vosberg.

Our next round of Star 360 testing takes place the week of December 6th. Students and staff have been working hard in their intervention groups to improve in identified growth areas. We are anxious to display our skills and show improvement on this test.

The Sources of Strength program has been busy constructing activities to involve the entire school. Please look for more information in the newsletter or on the Facebook Page (Center-Stanton Sources of Strength). You will find all the awesome things these students and staff are doing in our school. They are so hip they even have their own Instagram Page (wildcats_sos) where students and staff can be seen participating in these activities.


Go Wildcats!
